Calorie Defenders

Calorie Defenders was an idea first conceived in 2017 while Lead Developer/Creator Barret Vasilchik was working at a job in Raleigh NC that had a break room full of candy. The struggle to resist the candy sparked the core concept of Calorie Defenders, a game about fighting the urges to eat all the delicious candy. Barret's love for 2D games and pixel art took this idea to life using a game engine called Game Maker Studio 2. While developing an early prototype he had enlisted a pixel artist named Kerrie Lake from Ontario Canada who would come to bring all the charm and cuteness into the world of Calorie Defenders. Shortly after a composer from Georgia by the name of Failpositive was brought onto the team to create the game's fun, energetic, and atmospheric soundtrack. Over the years they have been working together to create Calorie Defenders and hope to release the game sometime in the future.

Supercar Fighter Jet With A Machine Gun is an arcade shooter where obstacles come at you to the beat. Featuring hectic fast-past combat and a scoring system that rewards a combination of destroying obstacles/enemies and precisely maneuvering around bullets, all balanced with a pretty dang good soundtrack and the rhythmic timing to oncoming attacks, this game is one that I believe has the potential to be a fun and memorable experience


You play as Whip, a racecar driver in an airplane-racing world. In a feat of impressive ingenuity and unfathomable stupidity, Whip straps a fighter jet engine and a machine gun to his car. With his new ride constructed, and maybe not enough grey matter in his skull, Whip decides to enter the largest, most important airplane racing event of our generation.

Marx Myth

I consider myself a lowbrow artist, educator, and lifelong learner. What does that mean? Life is a journey…so savor each uncanny step!

As I go along, I keep accumulating things…that interests me, things that affect me, things that scare me, things that make me cry, things that make me laugh….this the learning part. As an artist I am constantly piddling with all this accumulated stuff…manipulating it…eating it…spewing it out…hanging it out to dry.

Along the way I came up with a term to describe this mercurial montage method "Cracker-Barrel Surrealism"… What does all that mean? I feel despite my traditional academic education, my artistic path has always been derived from my own invention. As a "Cracker-barrel Surrealist" my strongest affinity is with low-brow kitsch with a twist of hallucinogenic whimsy. All creative endeavors fascinate me…but, especially phantasmagoric visions, comics with preposterously strange sensibilities, or any art with an out-of-kilter sense of humor!

I love most any medium of expression; painting, sculpting, writing, or numerous CG explorations. But…I proclaim that my sketchbooks are my mainstay. I have kept a series of ongoing sketchbooks for years. Each book is flavored with esoteric ideas and pre-production formulations…I indulge myself as often as possible…this obsession has kept my skills honed and my catharsis eternal.

Power GPU
